About Us

Arcadi Kolchak, Author

Arcadi Kolchak was inspired by the tragic loss of his beloved family dog, which the family had little to remember him by. Wanting to immortalize the memory of his own beloved pet rabbit, Fitz, who had recently developed cataracts, Arcadi combined his love for story-telling, poetry, and art into a pandemic project, “Fitz the Food Fanatic.” He plans to continue his efforts in sharing his love for pets with the world through additional poetic tales of the furry little friends we cannot live without.

She grew up with a one-eyed golden tabby cat named Tong. When Fitz came into her life in 2020, she could not help but fall for this adorable furry little bun. As a food fanatic herself, May is excited to share her love of food with the world and teach kids about healthy vegetables through fun stories.
